  • Pre-Installation Checklist: A successful installation requires proper preparation of the sub floor. Read and understand all applicable guidelines and technical data sheets before installation. Follow industry standards and flooring manufacturer’s recommendations for sub floor moisture content, design, layout and application of flooring materials. All slab constructions must meet the specific requirements of the floor covering to be installed.

  • Sub Floor Examination: Prior to installation, the sub floor must be checked according to NWFA installation guidelines. It must be solid and sound, flat, permanently dry, clean, free of chaps, indentations and anti-adherents, as well as resistant to pressure and tension. Moisture content of all floors must be measured before installation. All wood floors should have 6-9% moisture content at installation. There should be no more than a 4-5% variance in moisture content between the wood flooring and any wood sub floor.

  • Sub Floor Preparation: Depending on type and condition of sub floor, a mechanical treatment (e.g. mechanical brushing, grinding or sanding) may be required. Intensity of such work must be determined at the site by the installer. Dust, paint, residual adhesives or other surface contaminants must be removed by suitable means. Cleaning the surface with an industrial vacuum cleaner is recommended. Cracks and gaps must be filled with concrete crack filler unless they are expansion joints. Level when necessary to 3/16 inches within 10 feet. Heated sub floors must be primed.

  • Installation Procedure: Spread the adhesive with the appropriate notched trowel. Avoid excessive adhesive thickness by passing the trowel evenly through the adhesive at a 45 degree angle. There is no flash time, so installation should begin immediately. Lay the flooring into the adhesive, correctly position it and press down firmly. Rolling is neither required nor recommended. Be sure to check the boards at regular intervals to make certain good adhesive transfer from floor to flooring is accomplished. Bowed boards or boards over low spots should be weighted down until the adhesive cures. Any adhesive on the surface of the flooring must be cleaned up immediately to prevent damage to the finish.

  • Limitations: Do not install solid wood below grade. Do not use on concrete with curing agents or sealers except approved Hardwoods4less Sealers. Do not use on damp sub floors. Do not install wood flooring with a moisture reading above 9%. Do not use adhesive as a leveling material.
